The cult hit anime will be available digitally and on Blu-ray
Fan-favorite series Bartender is about to get a lot more accessible, thanks to a partnership between Shout! Factory and Anime Limited.
The 2006 series based on Araki Joh and Kenji Nagatomo's manga centers on Ryu Sasakura, a bartending prodigy who knows the right drink to serve to any customer at the right time. The episodic show won hearts around the world, and has been highly sought after by fans since then.
The latest partnership between Shout! Factory and Glasgow-based Anime Limited will bring Bartender to North America in a variety of formats, including digital, video-on-demand, broadcast, and home entertainment for cross-platform releases. Most notably, fans can look forward to a 15th anniversary, multi-disc Bartender collector's edition Blu-ray in 2021.
The home video and digital releases of Bartender will kick off early next year.
